Anthony Brown

Anthony Brown is a critically acclaimed baritone. Besides the standard classical repertoire, he has made a specialty of performing music of the American experience, especially Negro Spirituals. He has lectured widely on the role and function of the Negro Spirituals. "This music, (he notes) graphically captures the deep despair of the soul and offers hope for deliverance from oppression and suffering... People from all over the world connect with this universal theme. The spiritual is truly a testament to the strength and resilience of the human spirit."

Deeply affected by the life and works of Paul Robeson, Brown is an international promoter of peace and a citizen of the world. His primary goal is to bring people together across the many divides that separate us. He has appeared with orchestra and in recital in Europe, the United States and Canada. He has appeared as an oratorio soloist performing Bach's St. Matthew's Passion, Handel's Messiah, Beethoven's Ninth, Mozart's Requiem, Brahms' Deutsches Requiem and Mendelssohn's Elijah.

He has performed and lectured across the United States at numerous universities, churches, and theaters. In the last five years, he has traveled and performed in Bosnia, Northern Ireland, China, Japan, Uganda, South Korea, Moldova, the Ukraine, and Russia. Brown has recorded three CDs--Spirituals, Embracing American Song, and Toil and Triumph. He is equally at home in performing art songs, Broadway show tunes, ballads, folk songs and American songs of the 1800s.
